About this Event

This talk will provide an overview of the socialization that inculcates white fragility and provide the perspectives and skills needed for white people to build their racial stamina and develop more equitable racial practices. This session may also benefit people of color who are vastly underrepresented in an organization and/or wonder how we manage to remain unaware and why we are so difficult to talk to about racism. This event is co-hosted by Community Shares of Wisconsin, RISE, formerly Community Partnerships & Center for Families, Groundwork, First Unitarian Society of Madison, James Reeb Unitarian Universalist Congregation, Willy Street Co-op, Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault.
